    I just saw this video where Nvidia has previewed their new set of GPU for laptops. And it won't be a "M" version anymore, it'll be a desktop class GPU. I can't wait to see the future of gaming laptops. My Razer Blade 2015 (with 970M) is amazing already, and if the Razer Blade with the GTX 1060 shown in this video will become true and reach out the public, TAKE MY MONEY!

    This was my first thought, but since it wasn't an option I chose the "make it a 1070" option instead. lol

    It's cool to see! I'm interested also to see what the price difference will be and how, if it all, it'll affect the New Razer Blade 2016, I'm currently looking at purchasing (when stock allows) so I'll need to work out if I want to hold out for the 1060 or not, and if it'll be worth it to me when I'm not really going to be doing stuff that's quite THAT demanding probably...unless I get carried away...

    It's always better to have extra punch whenever needed. And with Razer's new pricing philosophy on their system, I guess it'll be around the same price *fingers crossed*

    Exactly! And between Unity, Audio Editing and the occasional video editing I do it's just worth having a capable device. Futureproofing as well!

    There's a good chance it'll be similar from what I can tell. The new chip is not only heaps more powerful and energy efficient but also more cost effective! *breaks fingers from crossing too hard*
  7. Unity is that new 3d engine right? What kinda work do you do in it, and do you think the new blade 1060 will be a worthwhile investment if you wanna get into VR development? Over say a discrete graphics card. (I have a Dell xps 13)

    Unity is a game making application yeah, and when I'm working on projects I'll often be in the project testing stuff live and making changes. I focus mainly on sound design but when I was working on a game for PAX AU last year I was a lead developer and made balancing and level design changes etc.

    In terms of VR I'm not an expert, but the graphics on the Blade are much better than that in the XPS 13, and the 1060 is VR Ready. Additionally the Blade will be working with a better processor and more RAM, so just generally it's a better machine if you're going to be doing more intensive things, which VR can be (although it will depend exactly what you're doing).

    I'm no expert though, I'm relatively new to actually working out my knowledge and understanding of components and how they affect performance etc. I can say though that the Blade will absolutely perform better than the XPS 13, and will perform a bit better than the XPS15.
